Am. Gov. Presidential Power, Freedom during wartime, and Japanese Internment

Another one-off lesson thrown together in 15 minutes. Many of you are reading (not really) a book in English that deals with Japanese internment during WWII. I’m here to help you. Let’s take this tragedy and examine the social, political, and economic effects of a president deciding upend the lives of Americans with no proof they had done anything wrong.

I want to look at these topics: Race as a factor in relocation, failures of checks and balances, executive orders, what happens to our rights during war.
